Escape everyday life and find each other in Old World Ambleside!
The elevated position of this fabulous little property gives glorious views of the mountains around this most sought-after Lake District village. A traditional slate-built hideaway, Smithy Cottage provides pleasingly modern open-plan living while retaining all its historical charm. One of our favourite cottages for couples, and just the perfect spot to get romantic!
Set on the lower slopes of Wansfell, one of several famous peaks surrounding the bustling village of Ambleside, Smithy Cottage is superbly situated to offer the ideal Lake District holiday. The very heart of the popular town is just a few minutes leisurely stroll away, and the views on route are really stunning. You can easily drop to the shops for groceries, to eat in one of the many tempting restaurants, or to take part in the vibrant night life of this well-loved Lakeland village.
Internally, the ingredients for a romantic break are all there; outstanding luxury, style, cosiness, and character. Seemingly taken straight from a picture-book, your romantic escape is a former blacksmith's cottage, lovingly renovated and now benefitting from a sleek yet exceptionally comfortable interior with feature spiral staircase connecting the open-plan living-area to the adorable bedroom suite above, with its dressing room, chaise-longue, and glorious views.
A little patio lets you sit out and soak in the sun with a glass of wine after your day out. And all the attractions of Ambleside and the wider Lake District are truly on your doorstep. Steamers run regularly from Waterhead Pier, and there are plenty of chances to hire your own craft; a row-boat for two, perhaps? And, of course, the walking and mountain-biking opportunities are simply unparalleled.
Romantic getaways should all be like Smithy Cottage, and all it needs to be perfect is the two of you!
